Standard operating procedure for touring indie bands is to nail the one-two punch of playing Mercury Lounge in downtown Manhattan one night and Glasslands in Brooklyn the next. Similar to its Brooklyn counterpart, Mercury Lounge is a small-to-medium-sized venue with plenty of serious power behind it.

With stellar line-ups and sound, we wish there were more venues like this old standby.
